The net weight of this eyeshadow palette is 1.5g or 0.05 oz x 8 and this palette costs AUD $47 or USD $36 from Tarte Cosmetics Online. This eyeshadow palette is made in Italy and it is a limited edition.
The Tarte Rainforest of the Sea Eyeshadow Palette is formulated without parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, triclosan, sodium lauryl sulfate, and it is also gluten-free as well as dermatologist tested. I am very pleased with these exclusions and this product ticked all of my boxes!
There are many eyeshadow palette in the market that listed Talc, which supposedly is a filler, as their first ingredient and this simply means that talc makes up a majority of the eyeshadow powder.
But, it is not the case with this eyeshadow palette as it listed mica as its first ingredient. Mica is the pigment that gives colour to the eyeshadow, hence this eyeshadow palette is pigmented and light handed application is recommended. A little goes a long way.
This product listed talc in the third order, which I have no problem with because it means that there is a little proportion of it that contains talc serving as a filler, but not as a majority of the element that makeup the eyeshadow powder.
It also listed a few natural ingredients that is derived from nature such as algae extract, coconut oil, gardenia tahitensis flower extract that boost its capability to hydrate and nourish our skin naturally. Another big plus in my opinion!
The packaging of this product is absolutely gorgeous! Perfect for gifts as well as a treat for ourselves!
It is a circular compact packaging with a good-sized mirror inside with a beautiful contemporary design of the sea gracing its cover. The compact is the perfect size for travelling as well.
Tarte always come out with the most innovative and yet beautifully chic packaging that tempt anyone who has the eyes and an appreciation to beauty just from its packaging.
